Emergency Support Needed to build resilience of Vulnerable women!!!

$50 can assist with financial training and establishing Savings Groups

The humanitarian needs in NWSW is greatly affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) was first identified in Wuhan, China, in December 2019 and has spread all over the world. 

With this outbreak of COVID 19, the existing gender inequalities and vulnerabilities and risks of abuse is increasing in Cameroon; women and girls may be at higher risk of intimate partner violence and other forms of domestic violence due to heightened tensions in the household and confinement.

We build the resilience of women and their families, improve gender equality, and support the development of women’s livelihoods through achieving two main objectives, 1) Increase financial access for vulnerable women, particularly in rural areas, and 2) improve quality of financial services, tailored to meet women’s needs.

GENDER MAINSTREAMING

H4BF has learnt from past projects that there is a need for deliberate targeting of women groups with armed forces, as they often do not take part in the formal release and reintegration process. women have specific requirements that need to be incorporated into programme planning to address their specific issues such as: (a) the difficulty of persuading fighting forces to release girls, (b) dealing with consequences of sexual and physical abuse, forced marriage, teenage pregnancy etc., (c) challenges in re-joining their families and communities due to stigmatization and rejection.

Our Implementing strategy ensure that the individual and different needs of girls, boys, and women are taken into consideration and addressed in the various components using a survivor centred and child centred approach.
